Things you will need:

  • Colored chalks
  • Water
  • Painters Tape
  • Sturdy paper

Instructions:

1. Soak your the chalk in a bowl of water first.

2. By using the tape, create a cross shape on your paper (could be wide enough of a 2 inch width)

3. Ask the kids to use the wet chalks or paint on the paper. It is okay if they even color it on the tape as we are going to remove it anyway.

4. We asked to wet the chalk as it has a consistency similar to that of the paint and the colors appear richer and deeper than the flaky dry chalk. Kids will be surprisingly happy the way the chalks work as a smooth paint sort of a texture while gliding it through the papers.

5. Allow the chalk or the paint to dry and check by touching with hands if it is moist and needs more time to dry out.

6. Slowly remove the masking tape now without tearing the paper.

  • Pop can tab
  • Glue
  • Wax paper

Instructions:

1. Do it in a place which can be easily cleaned. A wax paper can be used as a base and be removed easily later once done.

2. The first and the most important step is to have an “X”in the center of the cross where there is a junction. With glue, stick the 4 matchsticks on the junction such that each of the matchstick heads are outside.

3. Then add a light layer of glue to one of the sections of the cross and start sticking the sticks in the same direction keeping their burnt heads outside. Begin at the X and work your way toward the outside of that section, using the center junction as a guide.

4. Continue the process around the rest of the portions as well.

5. When the cross is complete, let it dry for few hours and then gently remove the wax paper and glue the pop can tab to the backside so that kids can hand it as an art at their homes.
